Here's what Andy Reid in two thousand and three and four coming off a little box. That is fantastic. You give any real extra extra week to prepare. He'll slice and dice I shoo.

Kobe Bryant and his daughter Jonah. Kobe was an extraordinary athlete. Who thrilled and entertained? Sports fans around the world for a generation. Our thoughts are with the Bryant. Family Family Kobe's fans his teammates the Lakers organization and the NBA news of the accident broke. Just as the seventieth annual pro bowl was getting underway in Orlando on Sunday afternoon prompting many players to react almost in real time during the game some incorporating signature koby moves in in their celebrations several. NFL players force their shock on twitter. As well Tom Brady tweeting. We miss you already Kobe while. Jj Watt said can't be true just can't be truly truly we horrifying rest in peace. Kobe and Super Bowl quarterback Patrick Mahomes said man not Kobe prayers to his family and friends. Hashtag rest in peace. Mamba there really aren't words to sum up. I think what what Koby meant to so many certainly on the court. His talent unrivaled but as a father as a husband. And I think what's made a lot of people identify with this. Even more is that we got to see the transition. This is a person who came out of high school and became a public figure at seventeen years old. Didn't even have a driver's license. And then we got to watch the evolution and the person and the husband he became and I think there is some identity that that comes with that as well. Yeah and we've all had a lot of time to reflect for the past twenty four plus hours but why this is resonated so much wendy other than the obvious that this is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. I've tried to think about it and a lot of different ways and keep coming back to. Is that something that we all share. There is humans not just those of us on the set. Those who love basketball those who are watching those who aren't watching is that we're imperfect and because of that all of us no matter what our stature is need heroes rose and Kobe. Bryant was a hero to countless people. Certainly many who loved Lakers many who lived in Los Angeles but around the world as well those who enjoyed the game of basketball and part of the torch that you carry as somebody who was blessed with some of the things Kobe Bryant was blessed with was maximizing your responsibility and your platform WPRO and Kobe. The Mamba Mentality is something that that was something that a lot of us work in television. Maybe working a job behind a desk. No matter what it was is we were able to adopt that into our life and tried to practice. What coby was preaching and what he himself obviously was practicing as well? People need heroes in life and Kobe. Bryant was a hero to a limitless number of people and I think that is part of why still a day later the emotions remain raw. It feels those almost odd to be talking about things in the sports world don't revolve around Kobe Bryant. This is a story that just going to resonate for a long long time. Yeah well and you know the second act seem so promising was so prominent. It's possible Kobe. Had just sorta scratched the surface with what he did in basketball. And we talk about Athletes Damian moving on to do different things he personified that I mean the man win an Oscar and he wrote children's and he was still motivated every day. I think to me that's what that's what I draw upon. It's being that we're both form athletes and I saw interview with Kobe Bryant and he talked about how how's Hoffa Gaza transition because your whole life. You're so used to doing one thing and Kobe. He said an interview that that was the thing that drove him to most post retirement was proving people wrong proven wrong that yes. I don't want to look. I don't WanNa look back. I WANNA look forward. I want to put my passion and other things that can inspire other people and we talked about the Oscar. They they want and I always felt like he was his journey was just beginning and I think for me again. Being a former athlete I can draw. I can draw from that knowing that okay. Okay you know here I am. You know been nine years retired now. I don't WanNa look you know. I don't WanNa look my you know my career like that. There's so much to to look forward to and you don't have much time in the grand scheme of things so it's still hard to process this thinking about this iconic person. I grew up a Lakers fan so so obviously watching. Kobe was near and dear to me personally but You know just thinking about the you know his wife and his kids I think to me. That's the hardest. Part of this whole thing. Is the family aspect in other victims as part of this horrific accident is just just terrible. Yeah I think that's the devastating thing is there's no question the greatness that he accomplishes an athlete as a basketball player but his his second act and how tragic it is is that got cut short very young age forty one. That's devastating part. Well this was in Miami. This morning there was also a billboard in Los Angeles US already erected as you might imagine and it's going to be talked about all week long so many people from the sports industry in one place and you know what hug your people hug your people because it's too quick gone too soon at the age of forty one. Kobe survived his wife Vanessa and their three daughters. Oh good good news we have an MVP senior bowl has an MVP in the form of Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert considered the best quarterback prospect at the event in large part art because Joe Bro and to a tons of not participating he was not only the MVP but he was the practice player of the week speaking to his work ethic and some questions Austin as he moves toward the twenty twenty nfl draft according to scouting. He's the third best quarterback in the draft great of eighty eight in Mel Kiper. Mock draft one point six at six to the chargers but all of that will change after his impressive performance in the Super Bowl or will it coach. How image document put on this always talking to senior bowl for coaches unlike scowl? Joe is you really first exposure after the NFL football season really all all but for four teams definitely two superbowl. You were there watching the practices and it was very similar to the first week of. NFL TRAINING CAMP NFL coaches. You're not getting bombarded by a bunch of installation. That's pretty simple the covered schemes. The front schemes are pretty simple and so you really got to see how a guy handles. NFL coaching basically like the first week. You wouldn't training camp. Here's why we put a lot of talking to this last year. Dave gettleman said following the giants election. Daniel Jones Yeah. We knew when we're at the super bowl. That was the guy that the senior bowl. Excuse me that was the guy. They saw him in the senior bowl. So I'm practice all week and saw them in the game. So don't be dismissive of the importance of the senior bowl. It can dramatically influence. A team's decision on any prospect specially quarterbacks which are so micro analyze because of the importance to your roster and your success with them going forward all right. Take some of these other. quarterbacks will start just just to remind people a little bit about what he has been about about six foot six huge in stature a local player who stayed in Oregon. His family bloodline. They're a solid week of practice. As you mentioned Wendy certainly played well in the game as is well. A lot of the physical traits checked out not necessarily the most vocal.

Coming up next
